GIVEAWAY: 3 Pairs of Thinksound Wood Headphones

To us, green is the color of the money we get to keep in our wallet or an herbal “supplement,” not some environmental notion created by lobbyists to dissuade us from bombing around in a 60s era fastback. But we’re also more than happy to entertain the idea of not destroying our planet with products we need anyway – like headphones. Thinksound is the ultimate realization of the belief that responsible, eco-friendly manufacturing didn’t have to mean crappy design aesthetic and shitty sound. Each pair of their earphones combines industry standard aspects (every from at least 8mm drivers to high end acoustics to passive noise isolation to ear hooks) with something unexpected (wood) to create a product you’d buy even if it wasn’t green. We’re going to brighten the horizon even more by keeping the green in your wallet and giving you green headphones.


We have three pairs of excellent Thinksound headphones to give away: one pair of TS01 Sport in Silver cherry ($75 value), one pair of TS02+ in Black Chocolate ($80 value), and one pair of Rain in Silver Cherry ($100 value). Want to pop some wood into your ears? Head over to the Cool Material Facebook page and leave us a comment about the first thing you’re going to play when you hook them up to your media device of choice. It can be an artist, album or specific song. We’ll choose a winner 05/06. Good Luck!
